Last month's Interbike show featured the typical Vegas fare. Among the overpriced hotels, underpriced shrimp, and scantily clad girls handing out promotional materials were a couple of new side show attractions. One of the more fun events came from Momentum Magazine's Urban Legends show. The runway fashion/bike style show is the first of its kind in the states as Momentum has brought their Canadian model to their southern neighbors. Nice concept: Great music with some beautiful people and bikes. But it has some detractors. How can a machine with an intentionally low barrier of entry like a bicycle share the same spotlight as exclusively-priced fashion? Can anybody riding a recumbant really be "fashionable"? I won't taint the pool with my personal opinions as i believe this is a topic better left to discussion.
So here's the question for all you readers: What are your thoughts? Can bikes and high fashion share the same runway?
